@rkimbowa: Open question. But the work of the Warsaw International Mechanism is going to look at appropriate ways to address #climatemigration among others. Costs & who pays will follow.
Typing here for Dominic, who's still getting online: (to Stella): In the past NAPA's generally referred to migration as something to be avoided. More recently migration is seen as a potential solution in the right conditions
@Stella: #UNU #CARE study unlocks #adaptation #migration debate: People mng #climaterisk to #food & #livelihood w #migration. www.wheretherainfalls.org
@Atle: #lossanddamage: Need to assess where #climatemigration harms human welfare. @Nansen @CDKN @AXA &@MacArthur + others have supported inroads here
I've been interested today to hear how complicated and location specific it can be to figure out how environmental change affects migration - for instance that rich people with more resources may be quicker to migrate in the face of pressure than poorer people who have fewer resources to finance a move
Atle, what elements do you think, so far, will be most key in creating a better legal framework for climate-related migrants?
And what kind of policy can we put in place to help ensure migrants don't end up in even more climate vulnerable situations?
@Sam @Mairi: Since we know food production is a part of why people move, we need things like safety nets to help protect them BEFORE they get into crisis situations.
@Dominic: In your CDKN research in Bangladesh, did you find differences in household profiles in terms of who moves and who does not in relation to climate risks?
